Q: Came the 12" with the picture sleeve with an inner sleeve. If so, what did it look like: Black or white with a patent number?

I recently bought a great copy of that weird 12" hosted in just a plain black cardboard sleeve. First I was embarrassed because I thought that I had been driven round the bend. Now I just found out that the picture sleeve had been limited at the time the record came out! Though more copies of the vinyl were pressed then, they were originally delivered in that certain cardboard sleeve. Both versions are official releases though. I just wonder, how artist and record company can come to terms with such, more than weird release politics.

I once saw an American Columbia 45 of secret friend / temp secretary. Secret friend was about 5 min long. I can find no evidence today that it was ever issued. Can ANYONE shed light on this? Perhaps it was issued then quickly withdrawn? Gmsomethingforeverybody @gmail.com

Looking to buy just the picture sleeve, get in touch if you have one missing the vinyl. Thanks!
